The MYbi Card Strap shown here isn't just a cute accessor—it allows RFID payments without the need for one of those ever-elusive DoCoMo FeliCa-equipped phones. Shopping via RFID tags has been seriously taking off in Asia, and these cards enable a stop-gap solution for those waiting for the perfect compatible phone (though yes, we know they could technically be attached to your keychain or wallet). They're available now in Korea with a variety of deposit amounts starting at 4,000 Won (about $3.50 US). Blue and green make a nice combination, no?
